Scan Code Saver, an Orange County-based advertising and marketing agency, Tuesday launched a mobile marketing business opportunity utilizing QR codes. Businesses can join a local network and advertise their specific QR codes within the network. Local users on-the-go can then scan the QR codes and instantly see offers and deals on their mobile phone.
According to a statement, CEO Seth Schiller believes this will eliminate the amount of profits that businesses often lose through coupons, discounts, and one-time offers. “We provide small businesses a fast, effective and inexpensive way to stay competitive and advertise the value using cutting edge mobile websites and mobile marketing programs,” Schiller said.
The new platform works with locally owned, independently affiliated businesses which advertise with a unique Scan Code Saver QR code. The code contains the company’s special EYEball TM seal in its bottom right corner, and allows the customer to scan codes without the worry of catching a virus on their mobile device.
“I think American consumers are growing tired of giving out personal information over the Internet,” Schiller said in the statement. “And it’s a hassle to give information through mobile devices just to get a local deal. Consumers shouldn’t have to put up with daily ‘spam’ e-mails or pay ‘up-front’ to purchase anything.”
